A Star Is Born (1937) Poster

Adolphe Menjou: Oliver Niles



  • Oliver Niles : Now, I'm going to turn you over to our demon press agent, Libby. Don't let him frighten you. He has a heart of gold... only harder.

  • Norman Maine : Do you think I'm slipping?

    Oliver Niles : Can you take it?

    Norman Maine : Yeah, go ahead.

    Oliver Niles : The tense is wrong. You're not slipping - you've slipped.

  • Matt Libby : That elopement thing is out; we're gonna have a wedding. Where are we going to have it?

    Oliver Niles : The customary place, I believe, is a church.

    Matt Libby : Nah! It's been done. This has gotta be something big... The beach! I can visualize it. The bridesmaids in bathing suits; twenty thousand Santa Monica school children spelling out the word "love"... but is it big enough?

  • Oliver Niles : [Referring to Norman's accommodations at a sanatorium for treatment of alcoholism]  Are you comfortable here, Norman?

    Norman Maine : Comfortable? It's positively luxurious! They even have iron bars in the windows to keep out the draft.

  • Oliver Niles : [to Esther]  All the experts seems to think that your type is a little mild for present day's taste. But I'd rather believe that tastes change, like eyebrows. And I think that also like eyebrows, tastes are going back to the natural.
